Chart of Xenoestrogen Sources
(i.e. contain xenoestrogens)
General Household PVC-based Plastic Items:
• Plumbing pipes, irrigation systems (contaminate water);
• Plastic Shower curtains / raincoats; • Vinyl flooring and wall coverings;• Baby bottle nipples/teethers • Squeeze Toys
Phthalates / DEHP (Plasticizers that soften #3 PVC) - released from source by heat, agitation, prolonged storage;
BPA (antioxidant in plasticizers);
NPE (nonylphenol ethxylates)(antioxidant/stabilizer);
Cadmium (stabilizer)
CDs and DVDs, and household electronics. BPA
Nickel-cadmium batteries
- the EU banned most cadmium use in electronics in 2004. A few exceptions allowed 0.002%.
Carpets, furniture, drapes NPE; formaldehyde
Gore-tex PFOAs
Cleaning chemicals: detergent, fabric softener, bleach, dry-cleaning chemicals; air-fresheners. BPA;
Phthalates (fragrances)
Extermination Products Pesticides /herbicides PCB, DDT, Dioxin, NPE (antioxidant)
Fungicide vinclozin
DDT breakdown product butylated hydroxyanisole / dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene
Weed killer E.g Lawn Weed 'n'Feed Atrazine
Insecticides / insect repellants Dieldrin, DDT, endosulfan, heptachlor, lindane / hexachlorocyclohexane, methoxychlor
Cosmetics Applied directly to the skin, xenoestrogens are up to 10 times more potent than those taken orally because they travel directly to the body's tissues instead of passing through the liver. Sunscreen lotions 4-MBC (4-Methylbenzylidene camphor)
Facial/Body lotion, sunscreen, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, make-up, nail polish/remover, hair spray/gels, soap, make-up.
In an estrogen receptor-binding assay, butylparaben was able to compete with the female hormone ESTRADIOL for binding to estrogen receptors with an affinity ~ 1/5 of the highly toxic synthetic estrogen diethylstilbestrol (DES), which was the first hormone to be used by the meat industry to fatten livestock, until it was discovered that it causes cancer even in extremely minute amounts.
Parabens (methyl-, ethyl-, propyl-, butyl-);
Phthalates (makes fragrance last longer; helps lubricate other substances);
NPE (in some cosmetics)
Workshop Electrical, oils, lubricants, adhesives, paints; PCBs
Plywood, Fiberglass Formaldehyde
Latex paint additive NPE
Biocide and wood preservative Pentachloriphenol
Food PVC-based:
Plastic wrap - preferred by food caterers for its clinginess; used for most cling-wrapped meats, cheeses and other foods sold in delis and grocery stores;
Flexible plastic - kitchen utensils, food containers, microwave ovenware; Processed food packaging;
 Polycarbonate (rigid plastic) items:
BPA can leach into food and drink in polycarbonate containers, especially when hot - putting hot liquids in these containers (e.g. by sterilizing) drastically increases release of BPA ScienceDaily, 2008
Large water bottles (used in dispensers);
Baby bottles
Food storage containers
Cooking oil bottles / Coffee containers
Drinking glasses
Epoxy resins coating the inside of almost all food and beverage cans and boxes. BPA
Dairy Dieldrin, DDT, rBGH
Teflon-coated pans (especially if overheated) Perfluoroalkyl compounds (PFOAs)
FD&C Red No. 3 Erythrosine
Food preservative BHA (butylated hydrooxyanisole)BHT
Some flavorings Phthalate
Processed food products - contain traces of xenoestrogens from solvents used to clean food processing equipment BPA
Product oils/fats - protected by xenoestrogenic antioxidants Propyl gallate
Fatty, salty, or acidic (lemon juice, vinegar wine, tomato sauce) foods packed or stored in type 3 or 7 plastic containers - increase leaching of phthalates and BPA PhthalateBPA
Medical Contraceptive spermicides / treated condoms Nonoxynol-9 (form of NPE)
Combined oral birth control pill (released into environment) EthinylESTRADIOL
A red dye used in tissue culture media as a pH indicator Phenosulfothiazine
#3 PVC-based and #7 Polycarbonate: dental devices, dental fillings and sealants, eyeglass lenses, medical tubes/devices(e.g. blood bags, hemodialysis tubing, and nasogastric feeding tubes) Phthalates, BPA
DES -from 1940-1970, this notorious synthetic estrogen was given to pregnant women to reduce risk of pregnancy complications; human studies revealed that its use during pregnancy not only caused cancer, miscarriages, blood clots, etc., in the women who used it, but also caused cancer, infertility, and deformities in their children, and even their grandchildren! DES (diethyl stilbestrol)
Industrial Manufacture Industrial surfactants; Emulsifiers for emulsion polymerization; Detergents in many industrial processes (E.g. Production of oil/pulp/paper, synthetic/natural textiles and leather). NPE (nonylphenol ethxylates);
Octaphenol compounds
Intermediate chemicals used in the manufacture of other chemicals. Alkylphenols

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMFT)


       "The medical kit of the future"

The Body Electric

General electrotherapy health benefits.   Used systemically and/or locally at specific problem areas of the body, its effective application has many benefits:

Detoxification Wellness / Healthy aging Pain relief 
Relief from insomnia Immune system restoral Anti-Inflammatory
Maximizes cellular energy production Accelerated tissue /bone
/scar healing
Stress Reduction
Muscle relaxation / rehabilitation Increased blood oxygen
/ circulation

There are several reasonably affordable electrotherapy devices available for personal use. The following electrotherapies are those that have received a significant amount of positive feedback:

Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) applies specific frequency patterns to the head area, with the following benefits:

Balances neurotransmitters Relieves pain Treats depression
Substance abuse withdrawal Relieves insomnia Relieve stress / anxiety
Anti-Inflammatory Fibromyalgia +++
